Python 2 vs Python 3 for Computational Tasks
The author of the book I'm using says it can be used by both Python 3 and 2 users, but some of the things in the book do not work in Python 3, so it seems he doesn't even use Python 3. It's quite a pain trawling the internet trying to see how things should be done in Python 3, otherwise you have to figure it out on your own, which is terrible for a complete beginner.
Most of the help for beginners is actually written for other programmers, i.e. it's not actually comprehensible to real beginners. And most of the stuff on the web seems to be for Python 2 as well.
That's the end of my rant, thank you, lol.

Some features of higher versions may be handy, but more often than not, the alleged need for a platform feature is in fact a design problem.
The most compelling case of recent days is
I really would fancy an alternative to adobe development environment, esp because, being a Linux guy, I don't know know yet if I should mourn or applaud the enforced "transition" from official support to pepperflash-only.
But compiling Lightspark would force so much need for updates and replacements on us, that I would hesitate to give a go for that - I simply cannot rule out side-effects when I replace core components of our current "Squeeze" platform.
That's quite a pity, and esp because I somehow doubt that all feats of Lightspark's platform are really needed for it.
Best regards, S.
